The paper deals with a numerical method for aerodynamic shape optimization. It is based on simultaneous pseudo-timestepping in which stationary states are obtained by solving the non-stationary system of equations representing the state, costate and design equations. The main advantages of this method are that it requires no additional globalization techniques and that a preconditioner can be used for convergence acceleration which stems from the reduced SQP method. A design example for drag reduction for an RAE2822 airfoil, keeping its thickness fixed, is included. The overall cost of computation is less than 4 times that of the forward simulation run.
